Robo Constructors

Hands-on robot building

Welcome to the world of Cubelets – the expandable modular robotics system. In this fun, fast-moving workshop, pupils will become mini-robot engineers, exploring open ended challenges to create their own novel, wacky and useful robots! The simple and intuitive Cubelet system allows participants to concentrate on learning about the rules of robotics and logic, without having to worry about challenging builds or programming.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe what robots are and why they are useful
  • Recall how different sensors can be used to control a robot’s movement
  • Describe how to build robots with different configurations using different senses and actions
  • Identify how different components can change the behaviour of a robot
  • Troubleshoot the construction of a robot to identify why it is not performing as expected
  • Use critical thinking, teamwork and problem solving skills to complete challenges
